Greetings! The University of British Columbia program in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, including our newly launched Marine Systems Initiative, are coming to San Diego to host an information session. The evening is a discussion of naval engineering education and research on the West Coast and will include a presentation from distinguished naval innovator and former researcher with the Naval Ocean Systems Center, Dr. John W. Rockway who will speak about the value of involving electrical engineers in ship design.

In conjunction with the talk from Dr. Rockway, the evening will also include short presentations from Professor David Michelson concerning the recently announced UBC Marine Systems Initiative and Dr. Chris McKesson, former technical expert for Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) concerning education for those building a career in the Naval industry.
This will be followed by an opportunity to network with industry experts, thought leaders and practicing engineers.
